As the U.S. sees the highest single-day increase in new coronavirus cases, Pres. Trump repeats his claim that he thinks at some point the illness will just disappear. Florida Democratic Congresswoman Donna Shalala and Clinton White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta speak to AC360 about lack of guidance from President Trump. Also, former National Security Adviser to Pres. Obama Susan Rice reacts to reporting from CNN’s Jim Sciutto. Multiple former Trump administration officials who briefed the President told Sciutto that Trump's resistance to intelligence warnings about Russia led his national security team - including those who delivered the President's Daily Brief to him orally - to do so less often. “You don't intimidate the messengers .. this President is derelict in his duty as commander in chief to brush off information that is critical to the life and death of our service members and do so just because he doesn't want to hear bad news,” says Rice.
